Argos 3 for 2 - Giant con? Thoughts?

Found 25th Sep 2013
Had a quick browse at some stuff on Argos now the latest 3 for 2 has started and nearly splurted my moloko all over the keyboard at the brazen scam they've pulled - namely most stuff has increased in price, by a quarter or even a third. The T
total cost of the three near identical priced items I checked a couple of days back has in almost identical bar a couple of quid - in this case the saving is more like 2 or 3%.

Am I getting old or is this the usual scam? I thought last year there were a fair few good deals to be had in the 3 for 2....

I'm hoping that 'splurted my moloko' isn't a euphanism.

It's not a scam. Potential buyers can research before making any purchase, no one is forcing them to part with their cash.

Argos are a business and in order to make a profit they need to sell as many goods as they can and will try to attract custom using marketing techniques.


Just noticed my typo - and I don't even drink moloko

if individual prices have gone up a quarter or a third yet the total price remains almost identical you should look into perpetual motion

You know you're getting old when you actually google 'splurt your moloko' and expect to be enlightened. Not that I did of course ....


If you look at the bottom of an item description it states any previous price that the product has been sold for e.g)

Additional Information

* Please note item 3380655 has previously been on sale at 10.99.

It has always been this way.
